Obviously wood-aged, with a smoky toast flavor, this is a wine that shows the power of Saint-Estèphe tannins in full force. At the same time, there is a blackberry character that adds richness and juiciness, which cuts through the dry core. Age for at least 7–8 years.

This is soft and velvety with blueberry and blackberry aromas. Full body with round tannins and a long finish. A rich and almost jammy wine. Plenty going on here! 2009 was excellent as well.

Wild meaty aromas and flavors of redcurrant, plum and leather. Concentrated, rich and seamless, with sappy, well-integrated acidity cutting through the wine's velvety texture and baby fat. Ripe tannins saturate the palate on the persistent finish. Another serious outperformer in 2010.

This 43-hectare vineyard is on soils that are a mix of gravel and clay with some limestone deposits and the average age is 35 years. Merlot hand harvested between Sept. 29th and Oct. 7th and the cabernet between Oct. 12th and 18th. Yields were 42 hls/ha after selection and saignée. Alcohol at 14%. Aromas of spring flowers blackberry and cassis fill the nose with an underlying gravelly rocky foundation. On the palate the power is dialed up with black raspberry supported by deep mocha blackberry jam and some nice minerality. The wine is precise and full-bodied with a lingering finish.
